Playground fun in Fayetteville

overcast 20 °C

Today we met up with Kieran and Mithra after school and went to the local park to fly a kite and go in the playground...

We had some fun flying the kite even though the wind was too strong for the kids to fly our 1.8m power kite so daddy flew that one which left us with one kite for 3 kids which, as you can well imagine, gave rise to a few tantrums, tears and drama but we managed to get some good flying time...

Teo heavier than Hayden had more chance at staying on his feet but at times had to actually sit down not to be dragged by the wind... neraly a pro my son ... well done!!!

Hayden had some easy winds first as you can see.. looking cool and kind of too at ease on those shots...

And then the wind picked up and so did his concentration... he did very well with daddy's help and managed to get some good figures of 8 and turns... well done kiddo!!!

We then went on a nice Thai restaurant... Teo had a spice curry which still tunred out to be too spicy... Hayden had a huge diner ... all adults finsihed ours and we had 4 take away ... this is tomorrow's lunch for us!!!!

Tomorrow weather forecast is rain so we are planning to do a lot of homework and cinema!!!!
